Woodsorrel (Oxalis stricta) - Small Hair Pin #1
This decorative hair pin contains one tiny specimen of Woodsorrel (Oxalis stricta), dried thoroughly and preserved in a small glass-like crystal of resin. This little native wildflower, commonly found growing in yards and beneath porches, and frequently confused with clover for it's incredibly similar leaves, is perhaps best known as an edible wildflower, with it's tangy leaves and flowers a tasty addition to summer salads.
The resin piece itself measures about 35mm long by 9mm wide and is attached to a standard 2" long "ballet pin" or "u-pin" for easy hair insertion.
The piece is very lightweight and should fit securely any bun or updo.
If you have particularly long or thick hair and think you may need a few extra u-pins I'd be happy to send along some complimentary un-embellished pins for you.
(Please note that the hair pins worn in the example photo are not the exact pin you will receive; the pin you will receive has never been worn).
